On this edition of Roker Radio we remember Buddy Ryan. He was the head coach of the Eagles and Cardinals, but we remember him fondly as the defensive coordinator for the ’85 Bears. At the world premiere of the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary The 85′ Bears. I spoke with some of the key people from that legendary team. “Da Coach” Mike Ditka, Steve “Mongo” McMichael, Gary Fencik, and Emmy award winning director Jason Hehir. They talked about how incredible a time that was, and what made their defense and Buddy Ryan so special.
On this edition of Roker Radio We remember our old friend Joanie Laurer also know as Chyna, she was found dead in her Redondo Beach apartment. She was 46. Chyna was always very nice to me. She could also be a hot mess. Ever since she left the WWE she what burdened by drugs, I use to kid her and Mary Carey that they put TMZ on the map by stumbling out of L.A. clubs every night. She had her demons, but she was a very kind, caring person. Chyna, thanks for all the years or entertainment.

Here’s my latest interview with The Hulkster.
